Growing up in a bicultural family, Daniel Ochoa began to recognize cultural dichotomies and to accommodate conflicting viewpoints based on contest. Daniel mainly uses a medium called dichotomy;
"Any splitting of a whole into exactly two non-overlapping parts, meaning it is a procedure in which a whole is divided into two parts."
painting in layers, Daniel uses masking techniques to jumble formal qualities such as abstraction and realistic representation.
"Recently I have sourced imagery from Google Street View and social media networks as a way to trace the effect technology has on the construction of images."
Finally I find Daniel Ochoa's art really intriguing and intimate whilst showcasing real life experiences captured in time along side history of humanity.
